The fluid level in these gearboxes seems to have a mind of its own. When it's even a little bit low, lots of bad things happen. Adjusting to the correct level is a PITA, but if you are diligent and...

If you don't remove the bumper, you will remove the radiator. No way around it. Way easier to remove the bumper IMHO.

Low on charge. All A/C systems leak a little. Over time, they lose enough to lose efficiency. Have it topped off and all will be well again. I have done this many times.

I back them off a full turn to prevent cavitation. If the seat is close, the fluid will cavitate and it will look like there is still air in your fluid when there isn't. You're right about them...
